All classical musicians goal is to play at Carnegie Hall, the old joke was “How do you get to Carnegie Hall? answer: Practice.
Well, there is a new joke – you upload your audition to youtube, then you are selected. Here is a short video about the event.
90 finalists from 30 countries. I was so impressed by James Frankel’s blogpost, he was at the concert and was extremely moved by it. I think we as musicians already think outside the box, we love to collaborate and practice. This is why I think so many musicians are into the social media and technology. Please visit the youtube symphony site and be amazed. This IS the beginning of something BIG.
